over further deregulation of wall street and the banking industry that started under bill clinton. and -- but he went -- bush was like on steroids with letting the banks and wall street do whatever they want. he caused a huge crash that we're not out of the woods on yet and frankly, we may even be heading toward another different form of crash. >> i ask these questions, mike -- i ask these questions, michael, because in your most recent column you wrote you say you're complaining about what's going on. do the democrats deserve what they're about to get? you asked. you answer, absolutely. a i was a little confused by what you precisely meant by that. >> well, they deserve it only in the sense that they brought a lot of this on themselves. then i also, i believe, went on to say that we have a responsibility now to save the democrats from themselves. they clearly haven't been able to figure out how to do it. we cannot go back. god forbid, to two years ago with the hell that we just came out of. if you want more of that, if you thought the first decade of this century was just, wow, r

fight between two top democrats. jerry brown and bill clinton. let me finish tonight with the inspiring sight i saw this weekend in front of independence hall. let's start with newt gingrich's tribal attack on the president. "newsweek's" harry fineman is an msnbc political analyst. i think you have to go back to almost pagan rights to find this kind of commentary by a major american official. talking about obama basically being a kenyan, anticolonial-type who's operating as his father's pawn. he's accusing him of conning us to elect him president. what do you make of newt, howard? >> i've been covering newt for many years. he's a bomb thrower. he's a guy who knows the weak point to attack. what's interesting to me here is he feels free to say anything at this point. it's a kind of free fire zone within the conservative movement. and newt, who's always trying to say the most outrageous thing and that goes back many, many years, now has moved from saying outrageous things about the ethics of the house members in the democratic leadership 15, 18 years ago, to saying these things
